Hi Everyone! I am a new member to the iknife collector site and to this Buck knives group. 
This picture is of a Buck knife collection. The collection belongs to my brother who many years ago worked for Buck knives in the late 1970's thru the mid 1980's. All the main knife pieces have "never" been used; they are in "mint" condition!
There are 34 Buck knives; and one custom made knife with the collector's name on it(not Buck), and one knife with the German Swatiska emblem on it(not Buck)
Of the 34 Buck Knives, 17 are "custom" or "limited edition".


In my world as a radio talk show host, with their own show, I am used to doing research on our show subjects.
I have taken this Buck knife project seriously and have done a lot of research and have learned a lot about this world.
One thing is for sure, this is an amazing collection and in my research, I have not seen anything close to what this collection has to offer...


There are no boxes,cases or paperwork; we did find a catalog from that era, which was the late 1970's and early 1980's.
My brother did not want to sell this collection, but the family is in need of funds to help pay our mother's house mortgage...We are anxious to sell the collection but we are not going to give it away either.
I have done some intensive price searches and have an intelligent guesstimate of what the collection might be worth...
We are totally open to reasonable offers for sure!
If you would like to speak to me on the phone, I am available any time for a chat:)
Respectfully, Doris Rivas-Brekke

The problem lies with China itself who will not recognize foreign patents or trademarks.  How many DVDs, CDs, knives, clothing etc. have been brought to their attention and the original owners haven't been able to do diddly squat about it.  Remember the big Sony movie kerfuffle of a couple of years ago.

E-Bay couldn't give a crap about forgeries being sold on their site because those fakes have been reported to E-Bay since almost day bloody one of their operation and squat has been done about it or ever bloody will.

The phrase caveat emptor comes into effect here and if an establishment is notorious for providing counterfeits, fakes, forgeries then I'll not buy from them and steer as many customers away from them as possible. 

I'd rather deal with a local dealer, maybe pay a few dollars more, and get something that I can depend on.  Yet, herein lies the rub. Joe Ripoff buys a Chi-com fake and at the same time a real one from a local or internet dealer; switches them and returns the fake to the dealer, gets his refund and the dealer is screwed out of a sale and can only complain to his supplier about it who usually can't or won't do anything about it.

You can't sue the Chinese companies as only Chinese barristers, in a Chinese court can present a case so only major corporation even have a chance of pursuing civil action.  It took McDonald's and Coca-Cola etc. years of court battles to protect their franchises so as to prevent anyone from opening a similarly named or operated burger joint or bottling plant in China without state repercussions.

As to being able to recognize a well done fake from an original--good luck.  I know of people who have sent the fakes back to the makers and even they couldn't tell the difference until exhaustive chemical, metallurgical, etc. testing was done on the knives.  Pay a bit more and buy from the maker or their authorized dealers

Schlomo -- thanks for making that Puma link on the 110 -- I always suspected but hadn't delved into the matter far enough yet.  And you nailed it on the Copyright/Trademark/Patent distinctions.  By the way, that Besh Wedge is horrible as a tip for throwing knives -- just sayin'.

As a frequent seller and buyer on Ebay I encourage anyone who spots a fake to always report it, you can even forward a link to Buck and they'll report it. The thing about buying knives online, (or selling them), is TO KNOW what you are looking at, and you need to understand you are still taking a chance, but knowing what you're buying improves the odds. Knowledge is power, apply that principle to Ebay and you'll be fine. (ie; learn as much about the knives as you can BEFORE you buy)

DLKG,

That is just incredibly rude.  YES, as knife people we can tell but what about the guy that buys a knife every three/four years and he is looking for his sons first?  He would just think he is getting a deal.  Dealers like that are not dealers they are just sellers

It's funny, there was a seller on eBay with a knife that was a total Buck Vanguard knock-off, box & all, for $10.  I usually expect to see fakes from China, but this guy was in the US, so I called him on it.  He said some crap about whatever, I can't even remember what his excuse was, but he was really defensive -- if I recall, he even said something along the lines of "the buyer should be able to tell by the price that it's not a real Buck".  I reported him to eBay, but I'm sure they get a billion reports along these lines, with all sorts of products.  Fortunately, the seller also pulled the listing & did not relist it as a Buck again.
